What Gig's Have You Been To?

Couldn't see a thread dedicated to live music.

I went to see The Specials last night at Rock City,Nottingham.  Good gig small venue (about 2500).  Decent atmosphere.  Was almost a very short concert with Mr Hall threatening to walk off after bottles were thrown.  It seems some people just can't help acting like idiots.  Some well dressed folks about too.  I'm always blown away when I see a women skinheads, a male skinhead so what?  But a woman skinhead that takes guts.

  • I saw the Chords UK at the 100club in 2016. A great night was had by all.

    • Mostly old Chords material or Popes newer stuff, SR?

    • Mostly old, but that was two years ago

    • Well it's even older now, then... :-D However, it will probably a good night out!

  • The Chords just anounced for the Tube Club, Düsseldorf, 1st of June. Very excited!!!

    • Is that the Chords UK Kai? If so only Chris Pope from the original band left.Was lucky enough to see the Chords in 2013 when three quarters of the originals came out to Oz,played on a boat as we cruised around Sydney Harbour.....magic!

    • Yes, I'm afraid it is, Billy. The promoter rectified the announcement overnight.

    • They are playing here too Kai, at a small venue near me, I already have my tickets. Last time I seen the Chords was in the late seventies in my town, there was a lot of aggro outside the venue and some poor bugger was killed, the episode tarnished what was otherwise a good night. Really looking forward to this gig, so hopefully, it`s full of old gadgy`s like me, that find it hard enough lifting their pints of beer, let alone their fists ;-)

    • Haha, yes, I guess it will something like that in Düsseldorf too, Alan!

    • Saw them live around five years ago Kai and they were very good. After the gig they came back to the club that Molloy and Mikey had put on. Had plenty of time for anyone who wanted a chat or had stuff they wanted signed. Great band and great people too.
